About the International Brain Injury Association:
The International Brain Injury Association (IBIA) was founded by George A. Zitnay, PhD, and Martin B.

The group assembled in Oxford agreed that a need existed for an international organization that worked with professionals and families from a multidisciplinary approach; thus, IBIA was formed. The IBIA seeks to encourage an international exchange of information, to support research, to provide training especially in developing countries, and to advocate for brain injury. To achieve these goals, the IBIA created the World Congress on Brain Injury which features member states and organizations from around the globe. IBIA also encourages the development of national associations, created by families and professionals joining to support brain injury research and service development.

And since then, we’ve created and provided free and accessible programs for people affected by TBI. Our programs are intentionally designed around what Kevin discovered in his own healing journey: that yoga and mindfulness can be powerful tools for self-empowerment and finding the resilience that exists within us all. At LoveYourBrain, we believe everyone in the TBI community deserves to access their resilience, embrace who they are now, and reach their full potential.
Mind Your Brain Foundation
About the Mind Your Brain Foundation:
Mind Your Brain helps fill the gap in the continuity of care for TBI patients. When released from initial acute and rehabilitation facilities there needs to be a network of services, on-going support, information, and education for the survivor.

Mind Your Brain seeks to enhance through advocacy, support, education, and research the quality of life of ALL those affected by TBI: patients, families, caregivers, and doctors. TBI has significant challenges for families and friends, as well as patients. Mind Your Brain brings together an extraordinary community of survivors and their families and caregivers to help them feel they are not alone, and that there are options for all kind of care and therapies. Having a strong foundation is the best way to start this long journey, and Mind Your Brain seeks to establish, maintain, and strengthen this foundation through our free yearly conference which helps the entire TBI community learn how to get pack the pieces missing.
